Starting this Saturday, Longmont Public Media is opening their Outdoor Cinema as part of Summer on the Streets.

From July 9 to Aug. 20, on every other Saturday, Longmont Public Media will be showing movies on the big screen in the pavilion in front of Longmont Public Library on Kimbark Street between Third and Fourth Avenues. The movies will start at dusk, around 8:30 p.m., and each week will showcase a different classic.

The screenings include “School of Rock” on July 9, “Selena” on July 23 and “Ferris Bueller’s Day Off” on Aug. 6. Each screening will open with a short film by a local producer.

On Aug. 20, Longmont Public Media is partnering with the Firehouse Art Center to present the BoCo Filmmakers Showcase. The event will feature talented filmmakers who successfully use creative cinematic language forms.

The festival’s aim is to promote and propagate short films and develop a spirit of friendship and cooperation between filmmakers, while also highlighting the diverse creatives in the Boulder County area.

“We’re extremely excited to be partnering with the Firehouse Art Center to showcase local filmmakers and their films,” said Sergio Angeles, executive director of Longmont Public Media. “We have immense creativity and talent in our community that we are excited to showcase.”

Organizers advise arriving early with a blanket or chair to get the best seat for the Outdoor Cinema.
